Coal country is lashing out at Hillary Clinton.
After Clinton made the remarks that her presidency would put tons of coal miners out of work, and then walked the statement back, democrats in the state are coming out to support presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.
CNN took to the streets of Logan County, West Virginia and found that a number of registered democrats would be switching parties, as they say Clinton would kill coal country.
“She meant what she said the first time about getting rid of the coal jobs and shutting down industry and all that,” said one democrat who will be voting for Trump this election cycle after being laid off from his coal mining job.
When pressed by CNN about Clinton’s walk-back of the remark, the same voter said “She’s a politician, what do you expect her to say?”
A female democrat voter told CNN she would also be voting for Trump if it came to a Trump versus Clinton general election.
Another registered democrat and laid off coal miner told CNN “No, I’m not going to be voting Democrat when I vote for the president.”
“So you’re voting for?” CNN asked. “Trump,” the man answered.
